Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seals well,could smooth out welds better. I have owned this box for a few weeks now, seems to stand up to weather conditions pretty well, I work construction and have left the box on site in open weather, everything inside is still dry, Had to lube the hinge some to get rid of the squeak. Locks were a little bit of a hassle to install, Had to get the adjustment right for them to work. All in all it seems to be a sturdy box, installed 6" by 2' casters to make it easy to roll around the slab, going over cords, nails, screws and small pieces of wood. Haven't used the cord entrance yet. Can't put large batteries in the tray, or big tools, but there's alot of room in the bottom, keep tablet and gloves and other small stuff in the cargo net, seems to be holding up well. Co-workers and Boss seem to like it, does take up too much room and the double handles makes it easy to secure and move when need be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT Job Box I purchased my first job box from Home Depot and it was a Klein Tools box. Then a week later I needed to buy a second job box and I looked at the RIDGID and it was much better. It had a better paint job, a storage tray and best of all it had a slow close lid. So I returned the Klein and bought 2 RIDGID boxes. Very well made and very good welds. I have bought other tools made by RIDGID and this box lives up to the well made tuff reputation of RIDGID. I would highly recommend this to anyone needing a job box.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality was slightly lower than expected Purchased this at Home Depot. There was cardboard covering it. Did not notice the runs in the paint and rough welds. Doesn’t affect the functionality. It’s a work box and will get used. Just disappointing to buy it with blemishes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good I like this tool box. I have two of these but from Lowe’s. The nieces from Lowe’s don’t come with anything. These Ridgid boxes come with a tool tray that slides and a net on the lid which is useful for the small things. My only complaint is that it is hard to get a 4’ level in there. Besides that perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as hard as I do Keeps my tools and equipment safe and secure peice of mind knowing that nobody is going to walk away with it. Just heavy enough for security but not to heavy for a half ton truck. The feet are a added bonus fork lift fits right under.

Can I get an additional orange flexi shelf for the 2048-OS JOB BOX?

Asked by: wrldltravler
The part number is 7650 but please take note that a 2048-OS cannot accommodate 2 Flexi-Shelf’s as the box is designed that way. Thanks, RIDGID

Where can I purchase the 2048-OS?

I can't find anywhere that has the 2048-OS, Home Depot shows it as unavailable, but they only have the 48R-OS, which does not have the rear tray.
Asked by: Rodrigo
Unfortunately the 2048-OS has been discontinued and is no longer available for purchase.

Internal dimensions?
